...Learn TDD with Codemanship

Software Craftsmanship 2010 Will Still Be in 2010 - But A Bit Later Than Originally Planned

After careful reflection, I've decided to push the Software Craftsmanship 2010 conference back into late summer or early autumn.

There are three good reasons for doing this, which I hope you will understand:

1. It looks as though people will want/need more time to dream up and hone their session proposals, so an extra 2-3 months will hopefully transalte into a better conference

2. With more time, I may be able to raise more sponsorship. Possibly even enough to completely fund the conference.

3. There are other software development conferences happening at Bletchley Park in early July that we would possibly clash with

All of this means that a late September or early October SC2010 is likely. My ambition is that it will be a unique event, quite unlike any conference you've ever been to, and that its organisation will be more open and transparent, and more democratic and meritocratic, too. If I can raise enough cash, it might also be free. But I can't make any promises.

The time to start working on your session audition is NOW. 6 months goes faster than you think, and the sooner you present the world (and his eponymous dog) with you demos, the sooner they can help you iron out the wrinkles and evolve it into exactly the kind of conference session that will turn heads.

Email links to your audition demos to me here and I'll regularly post them on this blog.
